A Colombian man has pleaded guilty to his role in a decade-long international drug trafficking conspiracy that authorities say is connected to the recently arrested Mexican drug lord known as "El Chapo."
After 13 years on the run, narrow escapes from the military, law enforcement and rivals, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is back in Mexican custody. Now starts what is likely to be a lengthy and complicated legal process to decide which country gets to try him first.
A massive operation that mushroomed through the western Mexican state of Sinaloa last week netted the world's top drug lord, who was captured early Saturday by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a condominium in Mazatlan.
